Vatican Private Tours

Easy Vatican offers high quality private tours of the Vatican to discover the marvels of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, Saint Peter and more.

The Easy Vatican private tour gives the total comfort of being just you and your party: no groups, no crowds, you will decide the starting time and the pace of the visit. You can spend more time on what you like and skip something that does not interest you and have the freedom to ask as many questions you like to your private tour guide.

As lines to enter the Vatican Museums and Saint Peter's Basilica are very long (up to 4 hours), included in the price of the tour is the ticket and the reservation to skip the line. So you will use a privileged access and will not be waiting in the general line.

When you choose a Private Tour is also possible to meet the guide directly at your hotel for no extra cost. If you would like to enjoy this option please contact us in advance to check availability. 

The itinerary of the visit will include all the highlights of the Vatican Museums: the Pio-Clementine museum with the famous marble group of the Laocoon, the gallery of Maps, the gallery of Renaissance tapestries, the rooms frescoed by Raphael and the astonishing Sistine chapel by Michelangelo.

After the museums you will complete the tour of the Vatican city going to Saint Peter’s square, with the colonnade made by Bernini and finally enter Saint Peter, the greatest church in the world, where you will admire one of the most famous sculptures ever made, the Pietà by Michelangelo.

The Easy Vatican private tour guides have an outstanding academic background (university degree in art history or archaeology and postgraduate specialization on specific art subject) to share with you all the culture related to these incredible art treasures. But we also select our guides based on their friendliness and communications skills to make sure that you will have a fun and entertaining experience. And of course our tour guides are all perfectly fluent in English and officially licensed by the Municipality of Rome.

We also offer private Vatican tours in Portuguese, Mandarin, Spanish, Russian, German and French. If you are interested in booking a tour in one of those languages please contact us by mail.

To buy an Easyvatican tour requires three quick steps: select date, select tour, pay online with credit card through a secured line. And in few seconds you will receive a mail of confirmation.

The Vatican tour was phenomenal. We enjoyed everything we saw and the guide was real good. The statues by the Romans and Greeks were astonishing and San Petro was breathtaking. Maria and I felt very fortunate about how good was all our trip to Italy. Thanks for your help.

Hello Andrea, the tour with Mario was great. He is incredibly passionate about the history of the Vatican and Italy in general and also a fun guy. We really enjoyed it. The visit of the Vatican would not have been so great without such a great guide. Gracias de todo! Un abrazo

This private tour of the Vatican area exceeded our expectations. Margherita/Daisy was an excellent guide - she spoke English very well and the passion she has for her work and the city of Roma was very evident. I would highly recommend this tour. We were a group of 10 and all of us keep talking about how much we learned and enjoyed our afternoon with Margherita . Thank you so much!

Hello Andrew, my family and I have been very satisfied with the tour of the Vatican. Margarita was very kind and her knowledge was deep. The visit inside the museum exceeded our expectations as we did not find the huge crowds that we read about. Your organization was flawless. Thank you. Kindest regards
